In Love…

In my quest I realised that loving for the sake of Allah unburdens your soul. It untangles the chaos in your life created by your expectations of different relationships. It is a reliance that gives you a sense of being taken care of by the Sustainer Himself. He elevates you from being needy to being a caregiver. He pulls you up from the dungeons of self pity, as you realise the criteria of true significance.
You learn to rise above your ego and take control of the part of your nafs that previously wanted constant acknowledgement from people, because your focus is not to please them anymore. Your focus is to please only Allah and this love makes everything fall perfectly into place. You are able to detach yourself from the surrounding shadows only to zoom out and appreciate the khair bestowed upon you.
He helps you look at the bigger picture as you strive to achieve the higher goal of acquiring eternal bliss. The more I realized it the more I fell in love with Allah all over again.
